Hallo again!

My creativity is back- never went really, but I have a heap of recent creations to share, most made at my last Craft retreat. It was a really relaxing weekend with a lovely group of ladies, and I love having my own bedroom at the end of the day, complete with an ensuite bathroom. I think that’s one of the reasons that my retreats are so popular! If you’d like info on any of next years retreats, just email me at melvillep@bigpond.com and I would be happy to send some info out. I have also just emailed all my customers the October class list, so if you didn’t receive your copy, let me know, and I’ll be sure to forward it to you. Todays creation to share, is an oldie, but a goodie! It is the Concertina Fold Out Booklet. Easily my most popular workshop, and I regularly create this design when I have a lot of photos, as I did scrapping the Kaszazz Conference, from July this year. Two photos to show it off- the top is with the booklet open, displaying all those photos! (16 photos in booklet alone!) and the bottom is with it closed.

Last chance!

Hi everyone!

As you may be aware, a brand new Kaszazz catalogue will hit our shelves the weekend of our national Kaszazz conference – July 13, 14 2013 -Pre-order your copy with me by July 10th!
There will be lots of exciting new products to look forward to; including a whole new SB range with coordinating stamps!

At this same time, a number of products have grown old and tired (some have been deleted by our suppliers) and will soon be retiring.

Please note that unfortunately, we have already run out of stock of some items and have had to remove them from sale immediately.
The good news is that all of the other retiring products are still available for ordering – UP UNTIL 5pm July 31 2013.

Please note that within the retiring products list some item codes are listed, however the product itself will be available in a different format:
* All 25 metre ribbon rolls are being retired, but in most cases the 2 metre rolls will be staying.
* ColorBox Archival inkpads have been replaced with Ranger Archival inkpads.
* Aquash water brushes have been replaced with Tim Holtz water brushes.
* Some tools (including pliers) are being replaced with Kaszazz branded equivalents.

Please email me for a copy of the list and if you need anything on it, let me know asap, as remaining stocks won’t last!

Chevron Stencil Card

Made with the Chevron stencil, distress inks and alcohol art markers.

Made with the Chevron stencil, distress inks and alcohol art markers.

 Better later than never! Here is the free Make and take card my guests made last Saturday. They learnt how easily you can colour white ribbon and rhinestones with our fantastic Kaszazz Alcohol Ink Art Markers, as well as applying distress inks with a blending tool, over parts of the stencil. Gold foil card stock is the perfect addition to the matting, highlighting the gold edging on the ribbon, which resists the alcohol ink art markers. I love this sentiment, from a Greetings set by Kaszazz. So perfect with the rainbow of colours used on this card. Buy just three art markers from me, and I will include the instructions and pre-cut/stamped materials to put this card together at home. Contact me by email. melvillep@bigpond.com. Or make it for FREE at your next Make and Take party!

Kaszazz Make and Take

Below is a picture of a Make and Take some of my customers enjoyed recently, using the latest Kaszazz New Products. They learnt how easy colouring ribbon and white flowers are, with our New Alcohol Ink Art Markers, as well as learning how to colour stamped images with them. Then they used the Ezy-Press to make a lovely embossed border strip and used Vibrant Turquoise Dylusions spray to spray one of our new chipboard butterflies. The base of the page is the reverse side of one of our Christmas papers, (Santa’s Sleigh) showing that they can be used for more than just Christmas! Book your Free Make and Take Demo with me in June, and receive an extra Free gift you that will love! melvillep@bigpond.com

You can make this for FREE at your next Kaszazz Make and Take party. Uses Alcohol markers, Dylusions Spray, new chipboard, Ezy-Press and stamping.

Kaszazz Chevron Stencil

This layout was made as a demonstration layout, to show my customers several New Kaszazz Products. It was inspired by another creative Kaszazz consultant, Amarylise Bessey. I used Distress Inks Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean, and Bundled Sage, with an ink Blending tool, directly over the stencil. I also showed how to colour our satin ribbon, using our Alcohol Ink markers, and how they don’t colour the gold edging on the ribbon. It’s a real WOW isn’t it!  I also used our Gold Foil card as the mat for the photo, to tie it in with the gold edging on the ribbon. Then I showed Distress stain to colour the chipboard (Picked Raspberry again- my new favourite!) but you could equally have sprayed it with Dylusions spray. The rhinestones on the word, and also in the centre of the ribbon flower were also all coloured with our new Alcohol Art Markers. I just loved how everything can be colour coordinated with Kaszazz products.

Kaszazz Stencils

Lots of ideas are coming through with the latest new products from Kaszazz. Today I’d like to show you our Brick Stencil. It’s so easy to use. I applied the Distress Inks Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, and Rusty Hinge, with an Ink Blending Tool, just by holding the stencil down and placing it in various spots on the base card. TTD stands for Team Training Day. I run them every New Products Release, and these photos are of me presenting the competition winning consultants with their prizes, at last September’s TTD. With the brick wall in the background of the photos, I thought the stencil was perfect for this layout. What other photos would work? I am sure you can all think of a few. Email me your suggestions and you might just get a prize from me! melvillep@bigpond.com
